Danner has some really nice boots/shoes and they’re running a sale with up to 60% off select products right now. I had bought a pair of work boots years ago and loved them.

Any way, I picked up a pair of the TrailTek Lights a few weeks ago(marked down to $85) and love em. I have a wide foot, so I bought the boot in EE.

They’re still just a little tight, but I haven’t properly broke them yet. Still, a very solid shoe for sure.

I will cast another vote for Danner, as I've had mine for years and they still look great and have been over some rugged ground.

If you plan on walking a lot (like most do), don't forget some sock liners to prevent blisters. Those are lifesavers on longer walks/hikes.
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

For hiking and walking and everyday in summer i wear chacos. Theres another brand called teva i think. Dont have to worry about wet boots and can jump in lakes or walk thru streams with them. They look dorky af but i also carry them when im riding trains for 'off days'

Not much support, but real lightweight and breathable. And not so dorktastic

I'd like to get some shoes that weren't made in a sweat shop (because you know almost all clothing is.)
I'll have to look into that

Yeah, man! I was busy traveling the world. I had one pair of shoes and I wore the fuck out of them.

I accidentally left them at an ashram in Kansas City a couple of weeks ago. Seems like a good place for them to end their life.

I hope they planted flowers in them.

:p

Oh, and them Emeril's are just my work shoes. Not my shoe shoes.

But I'm glad you were amused. and are also finding this post useful.

Thanks guys!

I once found a pair of Rockport Pro Walkers in a Goodwill that were my size. They were brand new and brown suede and felt so good on my feet while walking. Probably the best $4.00 I ever spent. Since then I've been a fan of their shoes. Even their dress shoes are surprisingly comfortable. They make a workboot too.

That's why I chose to only buy second hand (or better get clothes for free ;) ). Not giving money to the "fast fashion" industry anymore ...
Hell yeah, me too. There's the lack of worker's rights in the textile industry.. plus the ungodly amount of textile waste.

However, I bought those 3 pairs of new shoes.. and I'm good on undies, but that is something I normally buy new.. but with some diligence I can probably find almost new shoes and undies second hand (just wash them undies first! 😝)

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
